Abstract (at least 300 words to describe your proposal)
The article "List of scientists opposing the mainstream scientific assessment of global warming" has a long and tumultuous history. Virtually everything about it has been, and still is, debated extensively and hotly, from whether it should even exist to what should constitute a "scientist". This talk will focus on what I think about it, whether its existence violates any of Wikipedia's policies, whether I think it matters if it does, and what I think should be changed about the list.
